Do you have a specific directory location in mind where we should put
the built object ? e.g. "ifeq ($(subdir),posix)" or
"ifeq ($(subdir),misc)" ?

Moreover, from where should we call the rseq initialization ? I'm having
trouble with invalid system calls parameters if I place it in
LIBC_START_MAIN() just before or after the call to __pthread_initialize_minimal.
I get what appears to be invalid parameters to sys_rseq, possibly due to
stack corruption (?). I'm investigating at the moment. But if you prefer
we call the rseq init from elsewhere, please let me know.
